LOL no. I go outside often and do hiking, fishing/crabbing, boating, yard work, spending time outside, etc. whenever there's an opportunity. Hardly staying indoors all the time. You may argue that Seattle doesn't really get hot, but Seattle gets heat waves with temperatures in the 90s F and I find that I like the heat. Humidity doesn't really bother me either.

That being said, I would not enjoy excessively hot summers such as summers in Phoenix or Houston. But summers in about half of the country aren't that hot and are pretty enjoyable.
